More reasons to workout than simply to exercise

To the Editor,

Re: Exercise options available, Letters, March 19.

To reply to J. Sharpe’s comment about buying my own stairmaster, it is not an option. There is no room to accommodate it.

The idea of going to the gym to exercise is to get out of the house and communicate with other people. It is a social aspect as well as the exercise that is of such importance to me.

I have met many great people who are regulars that I look forward to socializing with.

I think it is a low blow equating the rise in fees as fair cost for the service provided.

Subsidies in the hundreds of thousands of dollars are provided for use of a very select few. Who benefits?
